If you want to make a fashion-conscious person scream in terror, all you have to do is walk up and whisper three little words in his ear: off-the-rack.
Because we’re all old enough by now to understand that custom-fit clothes just look better. Way better.
But price is usually always an issue.
At least that’s what we thought before we met Michael Edwards at J. Hilburn. We now think of him as our suave, gay, fashion fairy godmother. (Yes, we realize how redundant that description is.)
We’ve had custom clothing made before, but his patience and attention to detail ensure that whatever you need, from button-down shirts to show-stopping tuxedos, will fit like a couture glove.
Best of all, clothing here doesn’t have to break the bank (though they do have some fancy-schmancy fabrics that are thousands of dollars cheaper than non-custom counterparts at high-end retailers).
Today, they’re launching a new line of Italian Indigo custom shirts from $139 that are casual enough for a night out at the bars and versatile enough to work into your business wardrobe. The fabric is made in Italy by a company that’s been around since 1830 and features a nice, soft touch.
As with all custom items from J. Hilburn, Michael will help you select your favorite buttons, contrast stitching and fabrics, monogramming and many other options to make it uniquely yours. Once your measurements are in the system, there’s nothing stopping you from ordering. And ordering. And ordering.
Finally. An addiction that nobody can judge you for having.
